Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag has slammed Marcus Rashford for partying at a nightclub a few hours after Manchester United’s 3-0 defeat by Manchester City.
“I am aware of it, I spoke with him about it,” Ten Hag said.
“It is unacceptable. I told him, he apologised and that is it. It is an internal matter.”
Ten Hag was asked whether Rashford had been fined. “It is an internal matter,” he said.
Last season Ten Hag dropped Rashford from the starting XI at Wolves owing to late timekeeping. In light of this and how United are struggling, Ten Hag was pressed on whether Rashford’s conduct on Sunday showed the forward was out of tune with the manager’s demands.
“Your suggestion is not right,” Ten Hag said.
“He is very motivated to put things right. I know how much effort he is putting in. He makes a mistake but that doesn’t say [mean] he is not fitting in. He makes one mistake but also off the pitch what he is doing, how he lives, I am sure he is doing everything right to help the team.”
